South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw will not need surgery after suffering a knee sprain in the loss to Tennessee, head coach Steve Spurrier said Sunday.

Spurrier addressed that status of Shaw, and several other banged up players from the 23-21 loss in Knoxville, on a teleconference. Shaw is apparently "walking around a little bit" with a knee brace but not practicing. No timetable has been sit for his return.

Starting defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles also sustained a knee sprain in the loss, and fellow defensive lineman Gerald Dixon Jr. has a sprained ankle. In the case of both players, the status for Missouri is unknown.

South Carolina's loss to Tennessee in Knoxville was one of several results that turned the SEC East upside down. The Gamecocks appeared to control their fate heading into the weekend, but now the matchup with undefeated Missouri will likely determine whether or not a trip to Atlanta is in the team's future.
